How do you build story-based advocacy campaigns that can have real impact? My friends @samleewright, @msteinman, @aechristiano & I pulled together what we know from social impact entertainment campaigns & the science of social change in this four part series with @SSIR.
Storytelling is the most powerful tool we have, but only when crafted and deployed in the right ways. We offer a model for building campaigns and highlight three critical roles: funder, storyteller and strategist. #narrativepower…
You are in on stories, but which stories should you tell? We share strategies for building or choosing transformative, counternarratives that can bring people together on divisive issues. #storytelling…

Anyone who tells you Mobile Journalism, or Mojo, is a trend hasn’t been paying attention. Today, the majority of technical and financial barriers between you becoming a professional journalist have been largely swept away. What you need is dedication and knowledge. @GlenBMulcahy
Glen Mulcahy, sometimes referred to as the father of Mojo, is ready to share his years of knowledge with you.

Glen is the founder of Mojofest and the former head of innovation with RTÉ, Ireland’s national public broadcaster.

Glen’s been at the forefront of Mojo before it was even called Mojo. If you have a passion for Mobile Journalism, then the LumaFusion for Mobile Journalists course will set you on a path to success.

Global Citizen #storytelling w/ #Greta™️

Youth populations, largely impervious to #COVID19, should avoid the experimental jab at all costs.

#Commonsense over influencers serving capital.

Sidenote: #JohnsonandJohnson is a #GlobalCitizen core partner.
Q: "What is this content piece?"

A: "Our journalism-based, reported stories keep Global Citizens all over the world informed on the important advancements of achieving the #GlobalGoals."

"Global Goals", also known as UN #SDGs must be recognized/understood as #emergingmarkets.
The #WorldEconomicForum officially partnered with the United Nations on June 11, 2019. It now serves at the helm of implementation of the "#GlobalGoals".

#3: "Good #Health & Well-being". Trillions are riding on the vaccine market & future of #biotech. This chart is from 2016.

Suhagan & Duhagan of Aror
Few years back I returned to Pakistan on short trip
There I drove parents from Karachi to my sister's at Fort Abbas
We made a brief stop at Daewoo Terminal Sukkur
In a hurry to reach destination in same day's journey I missed a landmark by few miles
From Daewoo's Terminal if we take a flight heading east across the scorched 'Rohri Heights', which now has turned into a quarry, in 5 miles we reach the Ancient Seat of Hindu Kings, Aror
There on a barren hilltop under giant power lines stand two peculiar tombs as if hand-placed
Now if you have read @MahimMaher's beautiful article she'd tell of a caretaker of these tombs and his grief
'At night Mohanlal talks to Duhagan-Suhagan. How were you built, he asks them. How can I fix you? The tombs do not speak.'
The tombs do not speak, but the folk ballads do

So a final thread from me as your host today: some top tips on how to write for a popular audience about complicated subjects #space #science #writing #storytelling
The essence of any good communication is simplicity. It’s the same in print, television, radio, online, or attaching notes to carrier pigeon’s legs.
In the sixties, a Granada current affairs show set the template for using a visual medium more effective: it was pioneered by a remarkable fellow called Tim Hewat, a flavour of whose personality is here:…

Darlo todo. Vaciarse para dar vida a otros.

Un acto de donación que hay que saber equilibrar.

Muchas personas en su vida personal y profesional se exigen desmedidamente. Le dan mucho más a los demás que a ellas mismas.
No es bueno que el pan de cada día sea olvidarse de uno mismo. Si no nos cuidamos, ¿a dónde vamos a vivir?

Este cansancio se vio exacerbado por la vida en familia en la pandemia. Estemos atentos, no somos robots.
Es crucial buscar espacios de conexión con nosotros mismos, en los que podamos volver a nuestro centro.

This is an extraordinary example of who & what media serves. This media event was viewed by millions. Perhaps billions. See man who steps behind Thunberg, to the right. No one - not 1 journalist or media outlet reported on who this man was - that accompanied Thunberg EVERYWHERE.
ClimateWeekNYC was created for The Climate Group by communications specialist Callum Grieve. #WWF identifies Grieve as a co-founder of #WeMeanBusiness. Grieve was the 3rd person to respond to Rentzhog's Aug 20 2018 first Greta tweet, tagging 9 others.

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?

(Weekend reading recommendations included. 😉) Image
Starting with the question what actually constitutes #CulturalHeritage, #sites, and #monuments of our age ...

So I'd like to ask the Twitter Universe for some advice.


I can help #SmallBusinesses with advice, but lack bandwidth now for consistent posting to raise profile. I also struggle with #LinkedIn, which is more #salesfocused than collaborative.

I understand the need for #SalesFocus, but often find it a little one dimensional, given there are other #growthpaths like #partnerships, #educationprogrammes and others.

With #RegenAgri, the need for education is often better understood, since it can be a complex area.

But often people in this sector are not great at story telling, and need support with that.

Providing a simple solution to this seems crazily difficult.

The ruling class "imperative" to save, rebrand & expand the capitalist system, is coming down like a sledgehammer over our collective heads. The "#reset" social engineering & behavioral change campaigns have just begun. Know your enemy. This is #classwar.

This is going to be one of my most important threads.

Agree. There is a lot more to unpack and there are not simple policy or regulatory fixes. If you think the feds coming down hard on what the population uses to connect and communicate, you’re not a student of history, sociology, psychology, etc.

@sinanaral in @HarvardBiz
I hear all the old, harmful ideas repeated by many who should be at cutting edge of technology. Whereas what @DrvanTilburg describes, if merely digitized to “control” social media, will not work, will harm #SoMe #AI #SciComm #professionalism
From the #healthcare lens there are these potential issues of #AI and #bias including as relates to #COVID19. Yet 30% of business are now using #ArtificialIntelligence in some form. Horse out the barn.

So what is the answer? Ban? Control?
